Sony, Motorola, LG, Acer join Apple, HTC to focus on top-end smartphones in India
News from Economic Times:

Writankar Mukherjee & Gulveen Aulakh, ET Bureau Jul 18, 2012, 02.48AM IST

KOLKATA/NEW DELHI: Once popular mobile phone brands Sony, Motorola and LG are joining the likes of HTC and Apple and focusing on the small but lucrative segment of high-value smartphones in the Indian market. The shift comes after multiple failed attempts to salvage market share in the fiercely-competitive feature phone and entry-level smartphone segments.

These companies may have globally decided to move out of feature phon…………… continues on Economic Times

LG Optimus Vu, Verizon’s suspect Note alternative
News from Product Reviews:

With all of the exciting talk surrounding the elusive Samsung Galaxy Note 2, there is still the matter of the first Note arriving on new carriers in the US. T-Mobile is now getting the device and although a Galaxy Note on Verizon doesn’t look to be happening any more, Big Red does have another ‘phablet’ device for consumers to consider.

LG has a smartphone and tablet combi in the pipeline after first announcing the device back at MWC 2012 in February, and it looks like the LG Optimus Vu is now ready for launch. The bad news is that the design seems to be coming in for a lot of criticism, as many of you are unhappy with the rectangular design firstly, but also the amount of branding on the device as well.

The Vu is a 5-inch device which Verizon hopes will provide consumers with a Galaxy Note-like experience on their network. Hardware specs are decent, but nothing amazing either – you’ll get a 1.5Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage and an 8MP rear camera combined with a 1.8MP front camera.

The choice of software may be a disappointment too, especially with all of the buzz surrounding Jelly Bean at the moment. A

Nokia Is Turning Its Focus On China

Nokia Is Turning Its Focus On China
News from Seeking Alpha:

Struggling to find the expected demand for its latest phones in North America, Nokia (NOK) is turning its focus in China where the company enjoys a strong image. Unfortunately for Nokia, many Americans are unaware of Nokia’s latest phones as those that can afford Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone usually go with it and those that can’t afford Apple’s phones end up buying phones by either Samsung or LG. Nokia doesn’t enjoy as strong of a brand name in US as it enjoys in the rest of the world, hurting the company’s sales here.

Olivier Puech, the operations officer of Nokia’s Asia-Pacific unit announced that “The company has made a decision to continue investing heavily in Asia in terms of product development” last week, meaning that the company will continue to move its efforts and focus from the western world to Asia where it hopes to deliver smart phones to the next billion people. Nokia made a strong presence in Mobile Asia Expo in China last week and its new products received a lot of positive reaction from the visitors.

Lately, the company closed a couple production plants in…………… continues on Seeking Alpha

LG to Sideline Tablet Development to Focus on Smaller Devices
News from Businessweek:

LG Electronics Inc. (066570), the world’s No. 4 mobile-phone maker, will sideline tablet computer development to focus more on smaller devices rather than compete head-on with Apple Inc.’s iPad.

“We’ve decided to put all new tablet development on the back burner for the time being in order to focus on smartphones,” Ken Hong, a spokesman for Seoul-based LG, said in an e-mailed response to queries.

LG introduced its second tablet named Optimus Pad LTE earlier this year as rivals including Samsung Electronics Inc., maker of Galaxy tablets and smartphones, sought to challenge the iPad. Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) (MSFT) unveiled a Windows-powered tablet called Surface yesterday, entering an Apple-dominated market projected to grow to $ 78.7 billion this year, according to an estimate by research firm DisplaySearch.

“LG doesn’t see Surface competing with anything we’re focusing on at the moment,” Hong said.

The electronics maker is trying to turn around its mobile- phone business with its Optimus line of Android-powered smartphones after being overtaken by Apple (AAPL) (
